New Scoot route

Scoot has announced a new route servicing Osaka commencing July 8.

Scoot’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliners will offer six options linking Osaka and Singapore, with three services operating via Bangkok and three via Kaohsiung, Taiwan, every week.

“Osaka has long been on our radar, and we’re excited to add it to our network,” said Scoot CEO, Campbell Wilson.

“Besides Osaka’s many attractions such as the Dotonbori food district, its castle and Universal Studios Japan, it is also the gateway to the stunning historic capital of Kyoto with its many temples and sights. When combined with our existing service to Tokyo, Scoot’s guests can now complete the ‘golden triangle’ of Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka without backtracking.”

The airline’s 787 Dreamliners come equipped with in-flight Wi-Fi, in-seat power and new more comfortable seats, a wide range of hot meals and snacks, extra legroom, streaming video entertainment, and Scoot-in-Silence for those aged above 12.
